• Panthers WR Steve Smith has history of coming up big vs. Bears

    Summary of 32 articles · Updated Nov 1, 2012
    But, so far Sunday, things are going well for the Panthers. There has been a lot of talk about Carolina Panthers receiver Steve Smith this week, just like there was about Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson last week. The Bears are the best team in the NFC North and should boast their 1st ranked run defense over the Panthers’ 13th best running game in the NFL. Trailing 19-7 in the fourth quarter, the Bears rallied - highlighted by Gould’s 41-yard game-winning field goal as time expired - for a 23-22 victory over the Carolina Panthers that pushed their record to 6-1, providing a 1 ½ game lead on the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers in the NFC North. Head coach Ron Rivera had his Al Haig moment last week, saying the buck stopped with him on personnel moves, but when asked about rumors of a Williams trade Monday, deferred to Brandon Beane, who was Hurney’s right hand man who handled all the organization’s logisitics and is being referred to as an interim GM.
